Cassie Rhodes: This Week’s I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE Honoree
The following is this week’s I AM, YOU ARE, WE ARE Honoree by Erin Gregory. What started as a dream has become reality for Cassie Rhodes. Growing up in Grape Creek, she never wanted to stay in Danville or in Vermilion County. Even after she attended the Christian school here and after making many connections in Danville, she still wanted to leave. So, she lived in Indianapolis for twenty years before eventually deciding the best thing to do was move back home. She and her two daughters moved back to the area, and she knew then that Danville was the right place for her. She met her husband, Eric Rhodes, and together they conquered their fears and dreams. Cassie’s entire family still being in the area was a huge benefit to coming back because she knew she would have a strong support system. With three younger siblings she would never be without her family again.
